Junior Professional Officer (JPO) and Associate Expert (AE) programs are gateway programs, sponsored by member states, that enable young professionals from member states to work for international organizations. Therefore, in order for an American citizen to apply to these programs, the U.S. Government must have a signed memorandum of understanding and funding to support the placement of a JPO/AE in that international organization. The U.S. Government has signed JPO/AE memorandums of understanding with the international organizations listed below. Please visit their individual websites to learn more about the specific details for each organization’s program. Since these programs are dependent on funding, positions are advertised on an ad-hoc basis. Please visit this website frequently for future postings.
